[Sponsored] Logitech G502 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse review - by Ino - Page 5

post #41 of 422
Very good review, thank you very much!


Actually seems like Logitech and Pixart managed to develop a flawless sensor, which is quite surprising to me. Didn't think this to be likely, considering how well ADNS-9800 mice still sell this days.

I am definitely going to get this mouse. I don't particularly need a new one, but still ... this just cannot be ignored by the common technerd xD

While the one with the new sensor gets alot of hype.

I still think most companies still do not get the keypoints FPS gamers do want to see in their mice.


I think, most people are not as picky about their mice as many users of this particular forum are, which likely will be true for many shooter players as well.

Additionally, many mice are not exclusively produced for that type of gaming. After all, FPS are not necessarily the most popular genre anymore. The shape of the Logitech mice always was very popular, too, so there should be no reason for them to change it drastically - although they did so a little bit, at least.

..and agreed. ^_^

Mainly talking from the view of an over-avarage skilled FPS gamer.

Too bad this sensor is propably going to be logitech exclusive for a good while and then razer releases their mice with a little bit tweaked version of it.

I found the right side of the mouse to be a lot more comfortable than on the G400 for example, mainly due to the missing lip. I will have to do longer gaming sessions to fully evaluate the shape though.

Literally the ONE thing I was hoping to see mentioned. I love my G400/G400S, but that damn lip on the right side starts to kill my right ring finger after prolonged use. Glad to see they did away with that (in my opinion) design flaw.

Not sure if I should grab this or the Avior 7000 though.

Hey guys, first post for a long time. Had to create a new account it's been so long!

I just bought this mouse and I have to say I love it. I does indeed support scripting, which I've used to meld the DPI shift and right-click together for FPS. I run at about 3400 DPI most of the time and drop to 2000 on aim (right-click). It's a killer function and raised my headshot count almost instantly.

I have owned a number of "gaming" mice as of late, including the Roccat Kone XTD, which has my favorite 9800 Avago sensor and the G502 is a serious step up, though I still love the Roccat. I have a G500s, which I loved for the button config but couldn't get past the sensor issues.

The G502 has an optimal button layout and it's extremely comfortable. The rubberized parts are in just the right places, the button click feedback is ideal.

I think one thing that should be mentioned is the weight adjustment of this mouse. The base weight is a bit light for my preference, but more importantly, it's VERY evenly balanced. If you're a mouse user like myself, you tend to need a bit more weight toward the right side. Using the included weights and the fact that you can position them in many different ways, it's really easy to fine-tune the balance. I tend to need a little extra weight, ideally, toward the front-right and center and it's easy to do.

I personally love Roccat's mouse software, but I also have a Logitech G710+ and think the G software is solid. The custom options from software on this mouse are on par with the Roccat, though not as robust. I love that they included a sensor calibration and it really works very well.

All in all, favorite mouse ever right now. Great review!
